sandy, t the disappearing ice slights at the north pole becoming ever harder to ignore but science and facts continue to demonstrate that yes climate change is real. so no one should really be surprised the last year was the hottest on record for north america, shattering the old record by one entire degree. that may not sound like a lot but keep in mind, if the world's average temperature increases by 5 degrees scientists think sea levels could climb as much as 20 feet causing cities like miami new orleans, to go the route of atlantis. skeptics keep on being skeptics. you are right. climate change science is a sinister conspiracy by the entire world scientific community to slightly reduce corporate profit by convincing people that air pollution is bad. that makes a lot more sense. joining us now via skype is heroic environmentalist and founder of 350.org the man who's become the leading face in the movement to raise awareness about climate change, bill mckickin'. it is an honor to have you here on the program. >> very good to be with you. >> john: is it worst that we broke the rec
that rejects maybe what might fit on a bumper sticker but is at least based in science. >> jennifer: so are you arguing that the smart initiatives that you are talking about are based in brain science or is it more in an economic pragmatic -- do you have more an economic or pragmatic take on it? >> i think it's both. i think we learned so much about marijuana today than the last 30 years. it's sort of ironic we have also seen the descendants of legalization. today's marijuana is not the marijuana of the wood stock days. it's five to seven times more potent. it also had less of other ingredients like cbd which actually don't make you high and what that does to the adolescent brain is startling. heavy persistent use leads to significant iq loss among young people. the british medical journal showed that marijuana intoxication doubles your car crash risk. so we just want to get the public health message out there for the american people to know about, since the only discussion seems to be bombarded with legalization and a promise of revenue, and getting rid of the
. that i have the genetic front loading for alcoholism. we know today from the science that a kid who has the genetic front loading for addiction and suffers trauma in their add less dense is 50% more likely to develop adickive disease later in life and co occurring mental illness. this i wasn't responsible for that, ok? we need to get serious about both gun control and treating mental illness in this country. >> cenk: republicans don't want to treat mental illness. they just want to register people so they can put them on a list somewhere. >> that's crazy. that's crazy. >> cenk: you know, then that leads to the question based on what you're saying if mental health is connected oh addiction, do they want a list for addicts, as well and what are they going to do with that list? >> i don't know, but the truth is this is insanity. i mean, we are the richest country on the planet. we, you know, we have an obligation to begin, you know, for every dollar that goes to the national institute of health only 10 cents negotiation to the national institute of mental health. we are now beginning to re
's not worth it. >> cenk: that's tough to hear every single time. e.s.p.n. explains the science of concussion a little more. >> big blows like this one can be the equivalent of taking a sledgehammer to the head. it's not just pro football. studies show high school football and even pee wee league football players are exposing themselves to the dangers of head trauma. >> he is not alone in committing suicide. recently andre waters, known as dan day dirty waters killed himself, duerson with the bears and ray easter ling. >> game over, politics are turning the sports world upside down. great to talk to you. talk to me about these concussions. that what can it is nfl do about it? >> very little. they find them receivers in a similar position as the tobacco industry, you're never going to make a cigarette safe. similarly, you'll never make the sport of playing football safe, whether you're talking about the pee wee league, high school, pop warner or the nfl. the case of junior, it puts an exclamation point on now what are several years of new medical data we now know about the cost of playing foot
, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> cenk: so we've been telling you about this stop and frisk program in new york city. it's outrageous because they go into private buildings--the police get permission from the landlords, whether the landlords want to give permission, that's a different question. but they go in and without reasonable suspicion they stop people all the time and frisk them to see if they can find something on them. but finally a judge in manhattan federal court said this is kind of unconstitutional, quote while it may be difficult to say when precisely to draw the line between constitutional and unconstitutional police encounterers such a line exists. and nypd has systematically crossed it when making trespass stops outside buildings. now to give a sense of why she ruled that way well, there was an enormous number of stop and frisks in 2011, 685,000 of them. my favorite number is that 88% of the people who were stopped and frisked were totally innocent. it doesn't appear that they're hitting the right target quite often. i wonder if
aside from his first day of work to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> jennifer: all right, time to see how things are faring in the frying pan of the progressive fire. for that we'll go down to los angeles and welcome in the host of the "the young turks." cenk august, uygur how are you doing today? >> cenk: i'm doing great. >> jennifer: what do you have for the frying pan tonight. >> cenk: jack lew. >> jennifer: oh, i see you're going to fry him. he's not a guest. >> cenk: no. >> jennifer: cenk, cenk, cenk, honestly he's good guy. >> cenk: we're going to talk to william black one of the regulators on the s & l crisis. he thinks jack lew having worked for the banks is a significant issue. we'll talk about that. i want to talk about progressive victories as well, and victory after victory is the gay rights groups, which is great. they had an anti-gay pass taken out of the inauguration. how did they do it? i think a lot of progressives can learn from the gay rights movement. and then the press conference on guns control was interrup
first day of work to his last, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood hostility, agitation depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems tell your do

is a bright, articulate guy who believes in science. he's wacky for that. i disagree with him on most issues but we need someone--with christie he does show flexibility like in new jersey he said after sandy we're going to have to raise taxes. that points to the other republicans who were so--they don't live in reality. chris christie lives in the real world. >> christie has done a great effort to reach out to minorities who are demonized by other republicans. a muslim-american who was demonized, and christie said enough of this crazy. >> he called out the shariya law they were scamming. >> he nominateed them and they were rejected by the senate. >> you support muslim support gays mr. christie meet the tea party. >> because he's moderate on abortion. he's with the exception of rape and incest, which is now--it used to be that was a conservative position. now it's a moderate position. >> and the etch-a-sketch. >> john: that's right. for chris christie, for all the things people like about him he still believes women who terminate pregnancyies serve to be in jail. we have more to talk about ri
straightforward guidance and be able to focus on other things, like each other, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >> john: remember when republicans held the american public hostage? our republican friends are holding our economy hostage once again. a new idea may provide a way for the president to pull the country away from the debt ceiling without giving into republicans. all he needs is treasury secretary tim geithner and a trillion dollar coin. the plan revolves around a loophole in which the coinage act which allows the treasury secretary to issue a platinum coin at any denomination he want so geithner could order a $1 trillion coin mint and use the coin to buy back debt from the fed, pulling us away from the debt ceiling and avoiding another showdown with republicans. this isn't some pie in the sky plan devised by economic wonks or sci-fi fans, it actually has supporters in congress. specifically new york democratic congressman jerry nadler who has proposed bringing the idea to the floor to use as a bargaining chip saying it sounds silly but it is le
so they would have good science about how to assess an addiction, and what to do about it. it's a book that i think should empower people to really look at their behavior and if they want to make changes they can. >> stephanie: it's interesting, because obviously you are all so good about policy as well. there are parts of the book talking about the drain on the economy. >> yeah, this addiction problem costs america $6 billion dollars. and this is the number one health care issue in the world? really? and our best solution at this point is legalization of marijuana, which i think is a bad idea. the truth is we have a lack of a political will here because it's a complicated issue, it's expensive, there is a lot of stigma and shame associated with it, there's 20 million people in recovery, and none of them are standing up demanding that our lawmakers do something. overdose last year surpassed traffic deaths. it's a tragedy. >> stephanie: oh i just got an email from annie and willie nelson. >> if it's working for willie nelson, god bless him. but i'm talking abo
by -- is it the university of michigan or -- >> this is a report -- a committee from the national academy of sciences, the institute of medicine put together a committee to evaluate the u.s. health disadvantage. prior reports had shown that in older people, people above 50 the u.s. does worse than other high-income countries. we focused on younger in particular. the whole age span but in particular younger people. >> bill: americans have worse health than people in other high-income countries. health disadvantage is pervasive across age and socioeconomic groups. ana diez-roux in studio with us ready to take your questions. we'll continue our conversation at 1-866-55-press here on today's "full court press." >> announcer: this is the "full court press." the "bill press show" live on your radio and on current tv. right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conversation. really? you know i'd like to arm our viewers with the ability to argue with their conservative uncle joe over the dinner table. alright, in 15 minutes we're going to do the young turks. i think the number
't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections tuberculosis lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores have had hepatitis b have been treated for heart failure, or if, while on enbrel, you experience persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness.
